Off the Cuff - With Dickinson PD
EP12: Chief Chat - Police Chief (ret.) Duane "Bucky" Wolf
Show Notes

A history-rich episode is made possible with retired Dickinson Police Chief Duane "Bucky" Wolf. Chief Wolf was a career officer within the department, rising through the ranks before ultimately becoming chief between 1992-1998. With an emphasis on training and professionalism, Chief Wolf was a pivotal player in advancing the department from the early "Marshal mentality" into the professional organization it is today. 

Drawing upon his experiences in the Marine Corps, Chief Wolf emphasized the importance of comradery and family. His service continued after his retirement with many years on the Stark County Board of Commissioners. He has been a proud patriot of both country and community, and we are thankful for him joining us on this episode!
